When I say about us, right now it’s about me! But I have a team of WordPress Geeks with years of expertise behind me. And I have my own substantial amount of experience. Read on if you are interested….
I retired from IBM in 2015 after 15 years there working on web applications. I was the one who took the designer’s concepts and made them into the user interfaces (UI). My forté is in HTML and CSS and building accessible and responsive web UI.
I began my career working in systems analysis and development of computerized business processes. Part of that was designing the user experience (UX), which is a big part of web design.
I’ve also worked creating digital marketing and education materials. My most fulfilling project was working with The Institute for Global Ethics. My most fun one was working with The Princeton Review to create an online SAT prep course. I missed those help-the-world kinds of projects while working at IBM.
When I left IBM I started a permaculture herb farm called Dandelion Forest and became an herbalist. I was drawn to this from my love of nature and biology and because it was a helping profession. I am bringing that desire to help others straight into SimpliCSSity. And I’m excited to be using my web skills again!
What’s in a Name?
I like simple things. When I was at IBM I was working on huge, complex projects and would appeal to the designers to keep things simple, which prompted me to start an internal blog there called Keep it Simple.
I wanted to bring that desire to not overcomplicate things to this business. It’s actually harder to do simple. You make conscious choices of what is really important to convey and how to do that concisely. That leaves a lot on the cutting room floor.
The CSS in SimpliCSSity stands for Cascading Style Sheets, which is the magic-making language of web UI. It also so happens to contain my initials – CS.
